Ingredients

  1. 5 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  2. 1/3 cup honey
  3. 1 large egg
  4. 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  5. 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  6. 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  7. 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  8. 1 tablespoon packed dark brown sugar
  9. 1/3 cup finely chopped pecans
  10. Cooking spray

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Mist an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.

  3. Transfer the potatoes to a bowl, and let cool slightly. Add the honey, egg, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, the nutmeg, ginger and 1/2 teaspoon salt; whip with an electric mixer until smooth. Spread the sweet potato mixture in the prepared baking dish.
  4. Mix the brown sugar, pecans, and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a bowl; sprinkle over the potatoes. Bake until hot and beginning to brown around the edges, 40 to 45 minutes.
  5. Serves 6.
